In response to a confession. I mean...obviously they weren't asking to leave *during* the tornado. I would imagine they wouldn't have a legal leg to stand on if that can be used in court to support the candle factory's opinion.

I did hear about the candle factory doing that. I'm not saying the candle factory didn't exploit the shit out of their workers and treat them like garbage, and Lord knows Amazon does too, but leaving, going outside, or driving is literally the worst thing you can do in a tornado. The safest places were the same places they took shelter. Unfortunately, those storms were just too strong. I don't think there was any place they could have gone that would have saved them. Now whether they should have had people come in at all that night, given the weather warnings, is a different story. And the candle factory's and Amazon's cell phone policy should absolutely be questioned. But keeping them in the factories and taking shelter was the safest thing.

Did ya'll hear about the candle factory boss threatening to fire workers for leaving? Amazon too (although even less surprising from them.) Seriously, anyone who wonders why the rates of mental illness are going through the roof, start here. Society is being made impossibly unfriendly to live in unless you are Jeff Beelzebub.

The devastation in Kentucky is incredible. Maybe that's what happens when resident of Kentucky keep voting for climate change deniers who oppose any legislation to combat it. Oh, and since the deeply red state also hates socialism, I'm sure they won't take any aid from the federal government. They just need to pull themselves up by the bootstraps.

In response to a confession. This was my post about the family with COVID. Well now ANOTHER friend, with no connection to the first, has just been admitted to the hospital with COVID. And SURPRISE! She's not vaccinated. No sympathy whatsoever.

An aquaintance's entire family (pretty much) contracted COVID. Her husband, father in law, mother in law, and sister in law have all died in the last week and a half. They are all conservative, anti-vaxxers. She just posted a Go Fund Me to help wth expenses. It's taking every ounce of my being to not make a smart ass remark.

Anybody who wants a laugh, google Boris Johnson Peppa Pig. The prime minister of the UK ladies and gentleman. I think he might be a bigger joke than Trump.

In response to a confession. When North Carolina passed the bathroom bill, people and companies boycotted the shit out of them. PayPal pulled out of opening there, the NCAA boycotted them, bands cancelled concerts, etc. It cost them $3.76 billion and hurt the state enough that they recinded the law. No one is doing that in Texas, and they should.

I live in Texas, but I'm not from here. I've never really loved it, but now it just gets worse by the day. It's a racist, sexist, backwards hell hole and getting worse. I plan to leave in a couple of years when my youngest graduates from high school. Both kids, who were born here, feel the same and are looking at colleges in my home state. What makes me mad / sad is that Texas passes voter suppression laws, abortion laws, doesn't fix it's power grid, etc. and faces no consequences. Why aren't companies boycotting Texas? Tesla decided to set up shop here. Samsung just announced a huge plant. No on gives a shit about the women who can't get health care or kids who froze to death and will freeze to death since nothing's been done to fix the power grid. It's all about making money, and it makes me sick.

So we just had a car bombing in the UK, fortunately the guy only killed himself. He was Syrian, but a Christian convert. Of course, the far right wing trash fire has decided he was obviously lying, because we all know the only religion that does the terrorisms is the evil Islam. It's jaw dropping the lengths people will go to to avoid calling a spade a spade when it comes to non-Muslim terrorists.
